It's a pretty fun watch--Verne Troyer/Mini Me's turn as the band's manager (SPOILER ALERT: He isn't the band's manager in real life, just so you know) is as entertaining as it is curious, I'd say. So, too, is the subject matter, in which the band tries and eventually rejects a slew of new looks, ranging from neon-heavy to '80s glam to alt-country to goth and a few others, I think. The important thing, of course, is that, by the clips end, all is right in the world and the band is performing--and having fun, too, kids--in its own outfits. Which are still a little neon, I think? Maybe I'm missing something.
Anyway, that's not the point. This is: The band's scored a kind-coup with the video, which is being used by Apple/Quicktime as a means to familiarize people with the capabilities of its latest edition. No word yet on any iPod Nano commercial opps, though.
Which begs the question: Is this coup a bigger or smaller one than Grapevine-based metal-punk outfit Scary Cherry and The Bang Bang's appearance on Windows' weekly free mp3 download site. For what it's worth, the song, "Let's Go," is the second-most downloaded song on that site.
